Cliffe Farm provides a significant and increasingly rare opportunity to acquire an attractive Grade II listed farmhouse with a substantial range of traditional buildings which offer huge potential for redevelopment set in a total plot of half an acre, close to the centre of the village. Pre-application advice has been sought by Scarborough Borough Council who have responded with the following, positive assessment that a scheme of development could be favourable (subject to all necessary consents and permissions).
“The principle of converting the agricultural buildings, workshop and stores to residential and/or commercial use and demolition of Dutch barn are considered acceptable in principle for no more than 3 units in total” – Scarborough Borough Council Planning Department. 1st September 2020
The Farmhouse is well deserving of its listed status and is believed to have medieval origins, although the majority is now mid 18th century with considerable remodelling undertaken a century later and then further modernised around 30 years ago. The accommodation is well cared for throughout and provides sizable and well-proportioned accommodation amounting to approximately 2,000 square feet in total. The accommodation comprises the following: entrance hallway with living room at the side where there are patio doors leading out onto the south facing terrace to the front. Large sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and an adjoining dining room. Farmhouse kitchen with separate utility room and cloakroom.
To the first floor are three very generous double bedrooms and house bathroom. There is a large landing and scope to reconfigure the first floor to create further bedrooms if required.
To the side is a one bedroom annexe, converted around fifteen years ago with sensitivity and imagination, the annexe provides a blueprint for the sort of conversion which would suit the development, should planning be successful. The annexe was created out of a pair of stables and provides one bedroom accommodation.
The buildings are arranged in a courtyard style and retain much character with brick arched openings, original beams and are generally in reasonable condition. In total the buildings provide floor space of approximately 4,000 square feet. There is access in from the roadside through large timber gates and once within the courtyard the site is both sheltered and remarkably private. The property is set within 0.5 acres in total with a large agricultural building set within the southern edge of the boundary. The grounds are currently uncultivated but offer much opportunity to create a more formal style garden if required. The adjoining land; approx. 3.8 acres may be available to rent.
